    i took this picture of a kangaroo at a wildlife sanctuary

    i was at F4.5 or something like that, 80mm and about 30cm away from the kangaroos face

    what i love about this picture is that you can see my reflection in his eyes

    notice my Crumpler 4 million dollar bag

    the bokeh from my Sigma 18-200mm is quite good, better than i've read it should be

    Nice shot! I love all the detail and the reflection in the eye is very cool.:thumbup:

    nice shot... depth of field is very shallow though (but you got the eyes in focus, which is good).


    colours appear a bit washed out on my screen, but that is just a question of taste and processing :)

    oh yeah, i was in a hurry, because the guy was striking the exact right pose, and i didn't know if he was going to move or not, so i had to quickly take it, which f-stop would have given a DOF big enough for his whole head?

    plus me and my group were positively starving and couldn't wait to go home
